10 essential strength-training exercises for cyclists

There’s no question cyclists (and pretty much everybody) should be doing some form of strength-training.

During the colder months of the year, cyclists can be eager to tackle new fitness goals, as the weather often restricts time on the bike and makes the gym the go-to fitness location.

Unfortunately, with age, muscle mass dwindles and bones weaken. That’s where resistance training comes in, helping to slow that process, and making the bodies of cyclists more powerful and structurally sound.

This video shows you how to target your primary movers (your legs) and strengthen the muscles that support your body on and off the bike (your core).

Always exercise responsibly and safely. Ideally under the guidance of a trained fitness and/or medical professional, who can match the exercise or sports regimen to your present level of fitness.
